  • So since the Elon twitter thing I have seen some s***ty replacement app get shilled Tribel or some s***. I heard Jack from twitter was developing BlueSky but its not even in beta, and then on random corners of twitter I would see mentions of Mastodon. Google tells me it is essentially exactly what Jack wants BlueSky to be.

    It appears Hollywood is tinkering with the idea of making the switch:

    Now, it appears to be the type of site that has servers, so like a discord / twitter hybrid? I have no clue what server is good or anything like that so does anybody have any tips/guidance?

    INFO SOURCED FROM OTHERS IN THIS THREAD (THANK YOU GUYS)

    github.com/joyeusenoelle/GuideToMastodon

    Good FAQ

    Generic server to join?

    mastodon.online

    joinmastodon.org/servers

    instances.social

    fediverse.party/en/portal/servers

    can be used to find more

    Idk about this either but I'm getting to the point where I'm down for whatever Jack is cooking up if it's free. Elon is about the nuke Twitter for good

    Doing my googles on it right now. Seems interesting. If Hollywood and mainstream jump in here first Jack might not get off the ground. We'll have to see what he cooks up. I'm signed up for his beta. You can literally feel twitter crashing and burning

    I just can't believe that Elon fumbled this so badly. Twitter had issues but they were minor compared to the s***show he's created. Will go down as possibly the worst business decision in history. Truly an idiot savant

    Do you not know how Twitter started? It was originally seen as silly for a regular person to tweet, it was perceived as something only celebrities "should" be doing, and eventually that went away. The celebrities are what made people attracted to it in the first place.
    Also, sidenote, it's so funny to see someone say they're "doing their Googles" in regards to this type of discussion, as if that's valid research. It's ultimately the same entity running all of these companies. So yeah, do your Googles. Find out everything they want you to know about themselves. You're being fed (double entendre).

    What in the entire f*** are you talking about? Coming in on some moral high horse like you are above this capitalist technoscape.

    As far as doing my googles, yeah it told me that this is a decentralized system that is meant to get around corporate ads and control and you get control of your feed and data.

    The s*** about the origins of twitter is common knowledge, plus I posted how it appears the hollywood industry seems to be leaning in Mastodons direction, so I never really took a stance there that opposed the drivel you posted

    Keep feeling cool and smart though
